Did you know that blue whales are the largest animals in the world? Or that sea otters wash their paws after every meal? The world is filled with millions of animal species, and all of them are unique and special. Many are on the path to extinction.
To mark the publication of her new book, Don’t Let Them Disappear: 12 Endangered Species Across the Globe, Chelsea Clinton welcomes young readers and their families in a special morning program at the National Zoo (recommended for 3-to-5-year olds).
She introduces a selection of endangered animals that she writes about, sharing what makes them special—and what threatens them. She takes a look at rhinos, tigers, whales, pandas, and other species, and provides helpful tips on what we all can do to help prevent these animals from disappearing from our world.
Clinton reads aloud from Don’t Let Them Disappear and invites children to join in hands-on activities inspired by the book’s endangered animals.
Clinton is the author of several children’s books, including the best-selling She Persisted. Don’t Let Them Disappear (Philomel Books) is available for sale and signing.
